From the President’s pen…

It was a “Village Vanguard” – type of evening…
Maggie Britton, a little fragile, perched on her stool, centre front, Wil Sargisson on keyboard, Col Atkinson on bass guitar,
& Steve Wright on drums behind her, conveyed an intimacy with us, a smallish audience on Show Day, not always felt in our large
space at the RSL – we weren’t down the stairs in that darkened New York City venue, but we could have been (if only…)
Maggie, with her incredible wealth of knowledge about the lyricists, the tunes, the co-composers such as Gerome Kern/Dorothy Fields,
Cole Porter and so many others, charming us from the Great American Songbook is truly a “Great Lady of Jazz”!
“East of the Sun”; “Start All Over Again”; “Driving Me Crazy”– plus her own compositions –“Boys From Brazil”
(plus an intriguing chat about why she wrote this); Ellington’s “It Don’t Mean A Thing”; and “Lazy Latin Life” from her CD
“Live At Lovestreet” formed just part of the entertaining evening.

I look forward to seeing you all again at the June 29th gig – crooner Brad Leaver & Swing Central quartet. Review: Chrissy Hirst
